The ALA made a submission in February 2024 on the Exposure Draft of the Aged Care Bill 2023 (Cth) (Exposure Draft of the Bill).

Our submission addresses a number of matters concerning the Exposure Draft of the Bill, including:

  • the proposed and new compensation pathway;
  • our analysis of the proposed Statement of Rights and the proposed Statement of Principles;
  • current immunity provisions regarding restrictive practices; and
  • the whistleblower protections framework proposed in the Exposure Draft of the Bill.

The Federal Government intends to introduce the final iteration of this proposed legislation into the Parliament in 2024.
